    Administrator Search Input

    January 17, 2018 UPDATE - The forum scheduled for this evening will take place tomorrow, Thursday, January 18th from 6:00- 7:00 PM in Pearl River High School's Pirate Cove. If you cannot attend but would like to provide input, the survey window has been extended to tomorrow night.   Survey Link

    January 12, 2018

    Dear Pearl River School Community, 

    At the last Board of Education meeting, the Board acted on a number of retirements including Sue Wheeler, our Deputy Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, and Quinton Van Wynen, our Director of Operations. As you know, we are committed to find the highest quality candidates for all positions that we fill in the district. Our search process will begin immediately for these two very important positions.

    We will be following a similar search process for these positions as we did for filling the last two administrative positions. The first step is to hear from you, what qualities you feel the candidates should possess for these central office positions.  To that end, Marco Pochintesta and I will be at the District Administration Building on Wednesday evening, January 17th, from 6:00 to 7:30 PM, to meet with any parent or community member who would like to provide input.

    If you are unable to attend this meeting, you can still provide input through a survey anytime between today and Wednesday night. The link can be found below and will be posted on our website homepage at www.pearlriver.org.

    The information provided will help us determine the criteria and qualities that we will look for in an Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction and in a school business official. Advertising for the positions will begin soon and will reflect the input received from our meetings with the stakeholder groups. Our goal is to appoint both of these positions in the spring so that they can be in place on July 1st.

    Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources and Community Services

At the same time, sophomores Lily Hill and Marguerite McAree place among the 145 highest-scoring tenth graders and juniors Gig Lam and Colleen Shortell among the 109 highest-scoring eleventh graders nationwide.

  • Driver's Education Update

    Dear Parents,

    We experienced some problems with the driver’s education program that was offered last year at PRHS in conjunction with a driving school, and we were notified by the NYS Education Department and DMV that Pearl River High School has not been approved to host a driver’s education program for the 2017-2018 school year. Students who are interested in participating in a driver’s education program will have to make independent arrangements with a driving school or company that offers a driver’s education program. There are several driving schools in the county. Below, please find a link which can assist you in locating organizations/businesses that offer this service.
